Charlie Small: Destiny Mountain

Charlie Small: Destiny Mountain

Summary

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AS: THE DAREDEVIL DESPERADOS OF DESTINY

This fourth volume of Charlie Small's journal was found by one of our editors propped behind a bottle at the back of a dusty bar in the valley where Charlie was last seen, and it's full of more adventures than ever!

Having escaped the clutches of the evil Puppet Master, Charlie joins The Daredevil Desperados of Destiny, whose sole aim is to get rid of the outrageous outlaw, Horatio Ham. Charlie, aka The Lariat Kid, brings down Ham's posse of gunslingers, takes part in a daring bank raid, is caught up in a ferocious gunfight, lands up in jail, and is about to be sacrificed to The Great Bird of Death. Can Charlie possibly escape?
